On Wednesday 21st June Mrs Osborne and Miss Attree spent a very thought provoking training day at Auschwitz in Poland funded for 250 teachers from around the country, learning about the Holocaust and how to improve teaching about the Holocaust in schools.
The trip involved a visit to both Auschwitz One and Auschwitz Birkenau with the Holocaust Educational Trust. It also included short talks by a rabbi, guided tours around both sites and a memorial service. Overall, the day highlighted the need to tackle discrimination in schools and the importance of promoting inclusion and acceptance of everyone, whatever their religion, ethnicity, colour, gender or status. They look forward to bringing the outcomes of this day into their teaching.
